According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, newer evidence — "a receipt from an Acme in Rhawnhurst, a broken key chain, smashed glass, a zip tie and an empty Herr's potato chip bag" — was found at a Maryland residence. But according to law enforcement, tips and other information from the community led FBI agents to Barnes.
SPECIAL AGENT ED HANKO VIA WCAU: "With the help of the media and many, many citizens who called in tips, we were able to identify this individual, identify his car and track it into Maryland."
It isn't clear if Barnes is the same man pictured in the surveillance video, but he is currently being held on charges from this case and others stemming from a previous case. Freeland-Gaither is currently being hospitalized with minor injuries.
